Cohana ~ Haberdashery from Japan

We love haberdashery that showcases traditional craft! Like Sajou, from France, who make beautiful sewing items using designs from their 150 years of business. We also carry Buaisou and Temaricious hand-dyed threads from Japan. These are used in traditional embroidery and for making Temari balls.

Cedar Shake Mitten Pattern

Last week we auctioned off our last copy of Juju’s Loops to raise money for Shelter.
